    Its linear gameplay offers ample opportunity to relay a smashing style that resoundingly beats out other recent competitors in the genre. Unfortunately, a clumsy interface jars an otherwise stylish, story-driven experience.

    With the updated graphics and cool God Mode this game will give you hours and hours of tinker and tweak gaming pleasure.

    Graphics for 4x4 Evo are gorgeous.

    It will push you to be a better gamer, but once complete it has little replay value.

    It is the best RPG experience you can find on Xbox to date (sorry "Morrowind," you were impressive, but you were just not that much fun).

    While the improvements made to driving are welcome, as are the new courses and characters, the gameplay ultimately suffers due to poorly designed putting.

    Who'd have thought you could have this much fun with barnyard animals.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 82 Critic Score
    The final battle isn’t a huge deal, and the ending isn’t spectacular, but it’s one hell of a ride to get there.

    Although limited in its length, kill.switch manages to fit in innovative gameplay backed by intuitive, streamlined controls that are some of the best on the Playstation 2.

    The loadout screen is also a pleasant surprise. The pseudo-holographic rotating representation of you chosen ship gives you a good idea of how the hard points fill out.

    The sophisticated AI and epic gun battles keeps the gameplay exciting even though there are a few poor level designs.

    Manages to provide some of the most challenge and fun I've had with a fighter in years.

    The graphics may be a bit lacking, and it may run a bit slow (I'd really hate to imagine a machine near the system reqs), but it's a blast.

    Blending elements of both action and adventure, Legacy of Kain: Defiance offers plenty of fast-paced combat between solving puzzles.

    Players who enjoy spending three, four, or more hours on a single game mission will find a lot of enjoyment in Warrior Kings.

    The turn based strategy game was surprisingly fast paced-there is so little waiting that I almost felt like I was playing an RTS.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 82 Critic Score
    Features slick controls, an outstanding presentation, and challenging play. Unfortunately, the game’s AI is a little too challenging to the point of being too difficult.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 82 Critic Score
    The game play is exciting and difficult at times but all in all it is an astounding chance to take on the role of a Veritech fighter pilot.

    I had a few bad experiences with this game but let me tell you this - as soon as I am done typing this, you guessed it - I'm Going In. I think you should too.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 81 Critic Score
    The interface of this game has been stream lined and is quite intuitive. The functionality tends to be well organized and rides the line between useful and overcrowded quite well.
    • 84 Metascore

    While not ground breaking in the graphics department the addition of psychic powers to your arsenal not only provides for some excellent new forms of combat it also provides for a great source of replay value.

    A nice return to a classic game scenario, but is far too short and fails to bring anything new to the series. While playing Blue Shift was fun, I would compare the experience to eating Chinese food. No sooner had I finished, than I wanted more.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It has provided me with in excess of 60 hours of pure addictive gameplay, and has earned a permanent spot on my shelf, sharing space with the likes of "Kings Quest 1" and "Doom."
    • 86 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The graphics look sharper, the creatures look and move more realistically, the items are impressive, and the quests seem to be a little deeper.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Although its plot didn’t captivate me, its exciting gameplay did. Gameplay is covert, yet exciting and had my heart beating rapidly each time I crept up on an enemy for a stealth kill.

    Although the game plays similarly to previous Red Storm games, The Sum of All Fears is much easier, and it lacks both preplanning and character advancement elements.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The graphics are quite goods, as are the maps, with lots of little places to work around and use for cover. For the snipers out there, you will be pleased.

    Beyond some pesky micromanagement at times, Earth & Beyond is a well thought out and executed MMPOG in the voids of space, offering a compelling and expanding storyline set far into the future where you can actually explore the galaxy that we only dream of exploring today.

    The first thing that drew me into the game was the amazingly beautiful world in which the game takes place.

    It immersed you in a pit of action and puzzle solving, all classic adventure game elements, and it was just fun controlling Indy and his whip.
